cain and senator lindsey graham both said today they want to have watergate style hearings on the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi and said if you nominate susan rice to be secretary of state, they will do everything in their power to block her nomination as senator graham said, he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. i would like your reaction to that and would those threats deter you from making a nomination like that? >> well, first of all, i'm not going to comment at this point on various nominations i'll put forward to fill out my cabinet for the second term. those are things that are still being discussed. but let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody

graham saying "we have nobody to blame but ourselves when it comes to losing hispanics. i intend to tear this wall down and pass an immigration reform bill that's a solution to an american problem." softening towards immigration reform is even happening among some fox news channel personalities. of course, not on fox news channel, but on the radio shows. but still, it's happening. so immigration reform may be more within the realm of possibility in the near term than it has been for a long time. last week on thursday, two days after the election, mark kelly, the husband of gabrielle giffords made a statement at the sentencing hearing of the man who shot her and 18 other people outside a tucson supermarket. it included a poignant call for a restoration to sanity on gun policy in this country for at least a return to what used to be the gun laws in america "we have a political class afraid to do something as simple as having meaningful debate about gun laws and how they are being enforced. we have passed up the opportunity to address this issue. after columbine, virginia tech, aurora, we h

, lindsey graham has been outspoken for a while, but jeb bush, perhaps john boehner, but i think it's not so simple as having leaders in the party come out and say, oh, we're going to move to the center on this issue. the republican party has spent so long, number one, purifying its representatives from primaries on the right, from club for growth and tea party, and number two, really demagoguing on the issue and calling for anything that provides a path for citizenship amnesty. it's not just the republican leaderships or representatives that were the problem. when i ran for congress in virginia, we found immigration wasn't the number one issue but for republican voters it was an extremely intense, emotional issue. i don't think it's so simple as just the leadership coming out and saying this is where we want to move on immigration. what do you think? >> i don't think it's that simple, and i think the tea party in particular has a tone in it and content in it that's tree extremely skeptical about immigrati immigration. most of the tea party people were re-elected, not all of them. this is a

$250,000 would go away. that was their baseline assumption. when you hear lindsey graham saying i'm ready to embrace that, he's saying for people above $250,000, your tax rates are going to go up. i think whatever happens, whether there's a little bargain, a grand bargain or no bargain at all, because of the shape of washington after the election, it's going to mean that the wealthy are going to pay more. whether they pay more because of a higher marginal rate or a higher average rate due to less deductions they can take, and that's going to be the first focus rather than cutting spending and cutting entit entitlements on day one. >> dan gross, thank you. >> happy to be here. >>> as 44 million get set to take planes, trains and automobiles for the holidays, our next guest says that security designed to protect us is doing more harm than good. he'll explains, next. watch this.
